Apologies if you are allocated a tee time a little later than normal. This is the occasion when all three sections of the club are invited to play on the same day and hopefully have a ‘fun’ day. If you have missed putting your name down and you are willing to play at the end of the field, please Brian King via phone or email. Brian King secretary @parklandsgolfclub.co.uk
It was another get together over lunch and coffee on Friday, 15th June, for some of the retired members of the Vets section. This occasion was supplemented with a slide show on the TV showing a collection of old photos of members past and present, taken over the last 30 years and more. Many thanks to Sharon Percy for arranging the event.
The Parklands Juniors played at home in the junior league on Sunday 27th May against the top of table Westerhope and we were unlucky not to come away with a win, but finished with a very respectable draw 6 – 6. It was another good win for our number one, Ben Jones, who remains unbeaten in the league this season and his performances have been noted by the Men’s team Captain Chris Bowman and he has been invited to play for the Men’s team.
On Bank Holiday Monday 28th May, four lads went to the City of Newcastle to play in a Texas scramble; Kane Mason, Harrison Sewell, Josh Barrass and Finn Bell. They finished 9th out of 16 teams – well done lads.
Lilian Allison had a great result whilst representing Parklands in the regional medal finals played at Richmond Golf Club on Saturday, 26th May. The winners of the ladies medals competition at Club Level go through to represent their clubs at one of 6 regional finals within the country. Lilian was in a field of 118 in her regional final at Richmond where she returned a net 75 to finish 8th in the competition. With the top 10 from each of the regional finals going through to the Grand Final played on Thursday 16 August 2018 during England Golf Week, Lilian will be off to Frilford Heath Golf Club. Well done.
Committee members should not normally need to enter any names as their names are already on the sheet.
In the interest of fairness please cooperate.
Congratulations Terry Mann on achieving your Hole in One whilst playing Parklands on Saturday morning. They reckon his cheer could be heard at St James’ Park. The big moment came on the 8th hole … well done Terry.
There was a good turn out from our ex-members of the Vets section who met up with other ex-members for a chat and a general catch up last Friday. The next date is on the calendar and we will post the details soon.
Just lovely to see you all ….
